About the theory page
Nice rewrite. It's frustrating, I know. I accumulated 1000 edits in the first part of last season shovelling and sweeping the "theories" out of the way. If it's of any consolation, we can go back to LA X, Parts 1 & 2/Theories next Wednesday and start cleaning it up because the rants (and ranters) will have moved on. My single worst complain are the people who can't stay on subject. I look forward to working with you.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 18:52, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah thanks for agreeing with me. Too many people are missing information that were posting, the page looks much better. Now people that havent seen everything are complaining about the guidelines. One guy said that even if someone had missed an entire season that they could make as good or better a theory than someone that had seen everything multiple times. Honestly I never saw Lost until this past October, but ive seen it all the way through 3 times, so I have a pretty good understanding of whats going on. Especially compared to people that watched it over the course of 5 years, its easy to forget small details. Anyways, thanks for offering to help, lets keep it clean. It looks like our efforts worked, before I posted that there were literally 2 comments on the talk page, now it is a huge mess like the theories page used to look. By the way im from Atlanta, kinda random. See ya in another life brotha.The Dirty 17:36, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Just wanted to say nice work on the theory cleanup. That's primarily what I do around here, because it's just dreadful. Anyway, if you want to include me when you pool your resources, we could probably be more productive. And Jim, it'll be good to work with you again... it's been awhile since our last mega-sweep with NEVERGIVEUP and Roobydo. -- 14:28, February 12, 2010 (UTC)
What Kate Does
My normal computer has been infected with Vundo.KA, and I am currently battling with the blue screen of death. The laptop on which I'm typing this is an old one, and very slow. Consequently, I won't be much help in editing until the middle of next week at least when I can get my laptop through a professional cleanup operation. I will do my best with 'What Kate Does'; however, I suspect that this is going to happen all the way through the season. One thing that occurs to me is that, as time goes on, more stuff will be revealed which will invalidate a lot of theories. Perhaps the best way forward is to let the hordes do their worst, archive everything with coherent labels, then only put headings on the theory page with links to the archive. In addition, I think we need a "Theory Disproven in Season X Episode Y" sticker. This will help future generations of Lost Viewers to sort out what is valuable from what is not. I think that at the end there will still bne a lot of theorising to do, as the Lost Powers that be have said that they will not clean up everything, so there will still be a place for theories even after the final episode has aired. Furthermore, I think that when we know "everything", a lot of what we think we know will, in fact have to be rewritten. This will make for an interesting problem.

Read your user page
The first time I saw lost was in April 2009. We had just moved to North wales and got BT Vision, allowing us to do catch-ups on box-sets. I had heard about Lost, like everyone else, but just thought it was another 'Heroes' or 'Eureka' or similar: OK, for a bit of a diversion, but it wouldn't hurt if I never watched another episode. I watched the pilot part 1 on my own, and just thought it was phenomenal, and told my wife so. We then watched the pilot together, then pilot part 2, then.... you get the picture. We did not surface that weekend, nor the weekend after, nor the one after that. By then we had watched Seasons 1-4 back to back, and with some internet searching, had watched season 5 back to back on the internet. Waiting for season 6 was a nightmare. I rewatched Seasons 1-4, then when Sky Broadcast Season 5 all in one day, we re-watched that during the day it was broadcast and the remaining episodes the next day.
I find, like you, watching back to back is the only way - otherwise you literally lose the plot. My wife, who has only watched it twice, sometimes has to be reminded of plot details, and things that happened in the early episodes. I think that LOST will become the classic of the start of the millenium, and will be watched, rewatched and analyzed for years to come. It is absolutely the Dickens of its era.
I am constantly amazed by the twists and turns. The wall with the names/numbers - where did that come from? What the HELL is that all about? Who is that kid? Why did we never think there was a higher power on the island? Hurley - just WHO has he become? ... and that funeral; that was one of the best scenes ever.
I heard the producers say once that they were in for "the long con". I am old enough to have been in the cinema when "The Sting" was shown on general release for the first time. The audience gasp at the denouement was somnething to behold. I suspect that we are in for a similar treat hear. I do hope so.--Sean Sheep 16:12, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
- Just don't understand the post on my page. What have I done to incur your wrath?--Sean Sheep 17:07, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
- Ah, just re-read it. It's a post you put on our "friend's" page. Wonderful!!!!--Sean Sheep 17:09, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Cleanup of Flash-sideways_timeline/Theories
You might just be interested in what I have spent most of the day doing. I have cleaned up the above page, removed all the discussion to the discussion page and reorganised that page as well. I think it is about 10000% better. However, there have been posted one or two interesting theories. I added my own under Flash-sideways_timeline/Theories#Version 4: Looping the Loop. I am sure that the final denouement will be something like this.--Sean Sheep 17:15, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
